If your student has special needs and you are interested in sending them to Clash Camp, please email us at clash@gfcflorida.com before enrolling your student. We would love to talk to you so we can see if we are able to accommodate your student. While we work to make camp an environment that all students can experience and enjoy, Clash Camp is not always able to accommodate students who need one-on-one assistance, have extreme dietary restrictions, and/or have certain disabilities.

Mandatory Parent Night will be held on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at the Lutz location.

If your student will require any medications at Clash Camp, our “Medicine Distribution Form” must be turned in with the medicine to our Nursing Team on the day of departure for camp. All medicine must be completely labeled with your student’s name and placed in a gallon-size Ziploc bag. The Medicine Distribution Form may be printed at home, picked up at the parent meeting on Wednesday, July 13th, or completed on the day of camp drop-off.

We will provide all parents/guardians with three points of contact while your student is at camp. This information will be provided at the mandatory Parent Night on Wednesday, July 13.

If your student has food allergies, please indicate this on the enrollment form. If your student has extreme food allergies, please email us at clash@gfcflorida.com so we can work with you directly to make sure we are able to accommodate your student.

Camp Rules FAQ

If you can’t wear it to school, don’t bring it to Clash Camp! Students should bring comfortable clothing/shoes for recreational activities outside as well as a swimsuit. Ladies – please, only bring one-piece modest swimsuits or tankinis.

Gentlemen – outside of swimming activities (i.e. the spring, lazy river, or wave pool), t-shirts are required at all times of the day.

Students are asked to leave skateboards, fireworks, firearms/weapons, phones, iPods, iPads, laptops, gaming consoles, pets & animals at home. Clash Camp is for building a better relationship with God, family, and friends.

No cell phones, iPads, laptops, digital devices, or gaming systems are allowed at camp. We want Clash Camp to be a distraction-free environment for students, and few things distract students as much as their phones. Over the years, we’ve found that taking students out of their regular routine opens them up to hear from Jesus in ways they haven’t before. Before we leave for camp, we will give you three points of contact for emergencies. All of our leaders, staff, and pastors will have cell phones, and will be able to reach you, if needed.

At the time of registration, parents and students are required to sign a Parent and Student Agreement, which includes the rules implemented at Clash Camp. 

Financial FAQ

Yes! If full payment is not made at the time of registration, a $50 deposit is required to save your student’s spot. The remaining balance may be paid through our monthly payment plan. You will receive a prorated bill on the first of each month leading up to camp which must be paid by the 5th of each month.

We never want cost to be the reason a student can’t attend Clash Camp. One reason we open Clash Camp enrollment early is so everyone will have an opportunity to make smaller payments leading up to Camp. Hopefully this payment plan will alleviate the burden of paying the full cost at once. If you know you won’t be able to afford Clash Camp, even with a payment plan, you may be eligible for financial aid. Financial aid is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you or a student you know needs financial assistance to attend Clash Camp, apply here. Registration and deposit must be completed for each student before financial aid applications will be processed. When financial aid is approved, the amount of aid will be credited to your family account and monthly bills will be adjusted accordingly.

Yes! For each additional sibling registered, you will receive a $30 credit to your payment account.

Yes. Requests for refunds will be honored through Thursday, June 30th, After June 30th, all payments will be non-refundable.

We will have snacks and merchandise available for purchase. While it is not necessary to send additional money, we recommend $25 for the week.

If you have any additional questions regarding financial aid, please email us at clash@gfcflorida.com and we will be in touch.

War Games FAQ

War Games are our way of having a little friendly competition at camp. We will have two scheduled sessions of War Games in which teams will compete in outdoor recreational games to win points for their team. Teams will also earn points for displaying team spirit, stellar conduct, and service to others throughout the camp experience.

Points will be earned by playing War Games, displaying team spirit throughout each day, and acts of service toward others. War Games rules and points structure will be shared when your student arrives at Camp.

War Games teams will be announced at the Mandatory Parent Night on Wednesday, July 13th.  

Each team will be assigned a male and female War Games leader. Leaders will be announced at Parent Night.
